Raccoon Trapping & Control
Most people love wildlife until it becomes a problem where they live or a disruption in their business. And unfortunately, as cute as raccoons are, in Louisiana they are one of the most common pests we are called out to manage. Raccoons take advantage of shelter in attics as well as raised homes or buildings, and will scavenge through your garbage or even raid your pets’ food on a regular basis. Raccoons are also known as major carriers of rabies, so they can be a serious danger to both pets and people.

Raccoons as a nuisance
Unfortunately, raccoons have adapted well to living in close contact with humans. They’ve learned to where to find food and shelter and remain major problems on roads throughout Louisiana. In addition to the nuisance factor, raccoons can also cause serious problems such as damage to your home or business. In fact, the commercial removal of pests such as raccoons from major industrial businesses and sites is an important service offered by DIAL ONE Pest Control.

Bat Control & Removal
Do you have bats nesting in the attic or roof of your home or business? DIAL ONE Franklynn Pest Control provides bat removal service for metro New Orleans residents and businesses that can help you get control of this problem before it gets out of control.
Bats are found throughout southern Louisiana and on both sides of Lake Pontchartrain. The most common species we find is the Brazilian Free-Tailed Bat, which prefers to roost in attics, barns and other open structures. While these bats are not likely to attack you, they can still pose serious threats to your health through the transmission of germs and disease.
Bats Do Thrive In the City
Metro New Orleans is not heavily forested or home to many caves, yet bats still find lots of places to nest. They love to roost in attics, barns, and abandoned structures which, unfortunately, are easily found in and around metro New Orleans.
Bats could be entering your home now through holes in the roof, soffits, or broken windows. We see this happening very frequently throughout New Orleans and the surrounding areas with the excess amount of blighted property still around the city. Once the colony has found a home within your home, they can cause serious damage to the property, and litter the area with their foul smelling nitrogen-heavy droppings.
Snake Removal & Control
Most Louisiana snakes are considered harmless but although many snakes are non-poisonous they can still deliver a nasty bite. As such, snakes can be a very frightening and dangerous pest to have around your home or business. And unfortunately many people are bitten when they try to handle or remove snakes on their own.
Even if a snake is harmless to humans, we don’t like having them in our yards, in our swimming pools, in our gardens or anywhere around our homes or businesses. We want them gone.
